Word Soup Free Verse 1

Love doesn’t dissolve into harbor fog.

It doesn’t carry the lovers into a sunset.

It is devoured by a swarm of locusts,

leaving merely husks

of the once passionate

now embittered.

Cut a bunch of interesting words from magazines, junk mail, paint samples, church hymnals, stolen restaurant menus…wherever you can find words that resonate in you. Put them in a bowl, draw a few, and see what comes out!
